war republican politicians told americans that dissent would encourage a tax on u.s. troops abroad. that images of american torture in abu ghraib would inflame anti-american sentiment and democrats should heed the words of general david petraeus. now the coalition commander in afghanistan, he says a planned koran burning this saturday will encourage attacks on u.s. troops abroad and that images of the koran burning will inflame anti-american sentiment. so where are those republican politicians now? petraeus' remarks followed a protest yesterday in kabul. afghan protesters chanting "death to america" and throwing rocks at passing u.s. military convoys until the leaders of the rally told them to stop doing so. petraeus then gave an interview to "the wall street journal" about the koran burning and gave almost identical comments to other media as well. to quote him. it could endanger the troops and it could endanger the overall effort in afghanistan. it is precisely the kind of action the taliban uses and could cause significant problems not just here but everywhere in the world we ar

're going to attend the dedication. senator harkin said republicans won't let us do it? what about the political fall-out if republicans were on tv not letting democrats pass tax cuts for the middle class? >> i was in the hall talking to harkin about that. again, now, harkin is a liberal democrat who normally would be gung-ho to do this. but i was astonished by what he said, that the republicans won't let us do it. the democrats are in charge of the senate. if harry reid wanted to bring up the bill that would allow tax cuts to be kept for everybody under 250 and raise it on that incremental amount, harry reid could bring it up. the republicans would filibuster it. there would be a vote. that could happen if they wanted to do it. but there aren't enough democrats in the caucus of democrats in the senate who are willing to do it. and there's nothing more i can say. they are afraid to do it. and they're afraid of the ads the republicans are going to run against them. >> howard finemann, as always, thanks for your time. >>> let's turn to chris hayes, the washington editor of the nation

us with what he said. the argument for voting on this. similar to today's vote in the senate, tax breaks on small businesses. senate democrats got two republicans to break their party's filibuster, to give small businesses $12 billion in tax breaks and create a $30 billion fund that will leverage as much as $300 billion in small business lending, which means senate democrats can argue republicans tried to block small business tax cuts in the middle of a recession. the argument against voting on the middle class tax cuts now. some democratic strategists are telling members of congress that even saying the word taxes helps republicans. that's it. but some republicans seem to understand the prospect of them blocking tax cuts for 98% of the country on behalf of the richest 2% a month before election day. i understand how that might not be a good thing. john boehner sunday said he would vote for the obama middle class tax cuts if those were the only tax cuts he could get. his counterpart in the senate tried to claim most americans agree with him, congress should extend tax cuts for eve
